Seoul used to be the best El Paso's, Korean restaurant. Me and my family, my sisters and their families (about 30 people total) visited this restaurant at least 2 times per month. However after switching owners, Seoul restaurant lost it's unique flavor. Don't get me wrong, the service improved greatly, but.... We actually put up with bad service just for... More

I had concluded my Doublevision day trip of 57miles/95kms in post-dusk darkness that had begun a dozen hours earlier in pre-dawn darkness, 18OCT2014, which began healthily enough with a banana, pear, apple (fritter), COFFEE, but slowly deteriorated at a late-lunch of warm eggnog & reasonably-(in)edible burrito, followed by a seriously quick debilatating diarrheic discharge behind scrubby cacti. Once relieved, I... More

This is by far the best Korean restaurant in town. Not only do American's who have been to Korea flock here, so do Korean families. The food is excellent and plentiful and the pickled vegetables just keep coming. I have tried all the main courses on the menu and many of the appetizers, and I have never been disappointed. Mrs...

This tiny place in NE El Paso is just amazing. This is about the food and not about the ambiance (shoe box with bad lighting and tooooo many TVs). Korean grandmothers cook in the back, the kim chiee is is just perfect. I adore all the little plates they put down. Last night we had 12 different pickley vegetarian plates.... More

After living in Korea for three years, we were feeling a little home sick in our first week here. This restaurant was great. The bibimbab was so good! It definitely fills you up! The kimbap was delicious too. Rolled a little thick but still good. Loved the side dishes! The lady who served us was really friendly and liked to... More

The menu said wine, but they didn't have any; they did have beer. Otherwise, the food was great - not too spicy, very flavorful. It is a small place and rather plain - no real atmosphere. It was very busy but the waitress worked like a whirlwind and the short wait was worth it. The food came very quickly. We... More

The food here is awesome!!! I LOVE coming here every time I am in town!!! The atmosphere is simple, cute and understated. The owner and the workers are very nice people and they make the eating experience more enjoyable. The portions you get are very filling. Hot (Spicy) BBQ chicken, Spicy Pork Bugolgi, Beef Bugolgi and the Kalbi ribs are... More

I've been eating at Seoul Restaurant for nearly 30 years. We've come to know the owners well. The restaurant itself, is a small space in a small, out of the way, strip mall. You wouldn't think much of it looking at it from the street. And it's simple decor doesn't wow you with elegance. But the food is always extremely... More

Small place with marginal facilities. Simple menu that listed wine that was not available; would suggest a simple update to make it more accurate. We ordered the pork cooked yourself at table and was just several pieces of frozen bacon of sorts. I have been to places that also provide oils and seasonings to allow you to add some flavor--unfortunately,... More

This is my most favorite Korean restaurant in El Paso! The food is great and the service is amazing. The owners are very very nice. The place is a little hole-in-the-wall, but it's still quite comfortable to be in.
